Text shown when Keystone is unavailable and trying to list Users in SysPanel is cryptic

Bug Description

The error is handled but too much information is displayed to the end user:

"Error: Unable to get user info: Authorization Failed: Unable to communicate with identity service: Unable to find the server at [hostname]. (HTTP 400)"

"Unable to display list of users" or something to that effect would be more appropriate.

yep, the code here should use exceptions.handle and not insert the exception message: https://github.com/openstack/horizon/blob/master/horizon/dashboards/syspanel/users/views.py#L47

    Improved keystone error handling in syspanel.

      * Added "AuthorizationFailure" to the recoverable errors list
        since keystoneclient raises it anytime it can't talk to
        keystone. Fixes bug 971249.

      * Used proper exception handling for the users index view.
        Fixed some tests that had been failiing but masked previously.
        Fixes bug 971250.
